“I am a Medical Herbalist with a Master of Science degree in Herbal Medicine. I have been working with people like you for over 20 years to help improve their health and their quality of life. I have a clinical holistic medicine practice that I run from my home on an organic farm near Port Burwell, Ontario.

Understanding the importance of both modern science and ancient healing systems, I feel that often it is best that people walk with a foot in both worlds. It is important that all health practitioners work together as there is a time and place for conventional pharmaceuticals and procedures, and a variety of complementary healing systems. Optimal health is multifaceted with multiple layers, and therefore may require multiple levels of healing and treatments. Herbal Medicine combines both science and historical traditional knowledge, offering help and healing on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.

I also teach a variety of classes on herbal medicine and health from my home, and in other locations as requested. I am very passionate about helping people to restore and heal their relationship with Self via Nature. It is in our DNA to harvest and make herbal medicines. Every woman used to be a herbalist for their own family. And I believe that it is this DNA reminder that is calling people back to learning about herbs and just how healing they are. I look forward to being a part of that remembering for you!” – Christine Dennis, RH, MNIMH, MSc. (Herb. Med.)

Workshops & Classes

Holistic Health Consultation

This is a one-on-one appointment with you to discuss your health and the herbal remedies that are best suited to help you.

A Consultation with Nature

Different from the health consultation, this is a contemplative exploration walk in Nature–we explore what Nature herself has to say directly to YOU!

Why visit a Medical Herbalist?

Ask yourself these important questions:

  1. What do you feel is most important for a good quality of life?*
  2. How many hours a week to do you spend planning, working, commuting, cleaning, tidying, etc?
  3. Now how many hours a week do you spend on your health and wellness?
  4. People are living longer. In what state of health are you planning on spending your extra years?
  5. Are you doing enough now for your health and wellness?

We are typically focusing so intently on working hard at making a living thus living in the present. Now ask yourself – is your health such that you are enjoying the present? What about your future? *Research has repeatedly revealed that health is consistently believed to be most important in determining a good quality of life.

Your health is an investment!

You spend your time and money investing in your home, your vehicles, your savings as well as your family and other relationships. But what about you and your health? What about your family’s health?

Herbal medicines are a very inexpensive investment when given by a qualified Medical Herbalist who offers an individualized approach that focuses on you and your health complaint. It is more successful than self medicating with herbal medicines from a health food shop, plus, it is less expensive as you are being given recommendations for just what you need. Recommendations are almost never the same as another person with similar symptoms, as it is the person being treated not the illness. This individualized approach is the key to successful treatment.

There is a time and place for both conventional drugs and herbal medicines. And they can be safely used together when prescribed by a knowledgable Medical Herbalist.
Herbal medicines do not have the side effects that drugs do and they help heal the underlying cause of the illness; they do not just cover up the symptoms.


Christine’s office is located in her home on her farm, which is nestled in her family’s farm, Otter River Farms. Otter River Farms offers woodlands cabins, wilderness camping as well as a large retreat/guesthouse for nightly, weekend or weekly getaways.
